Degrees and Certifications:
University of North Texas - Bachelor of Arts, History - May 2012
Hello and welcome to my class! My name is Brandon Slimmer and I teach AP World History and World History. This is my seventh year teaching high school and my fourth year here at Denton High. I have been a Denton resident for eight years and I love being able to teach here in the community that I care so much about!
I was born and raised about an hour away in Ft. Worth and graduated from North Crowley High School in 2008. I spent my first two years of college at Tarrant County College in Ft. Worth and I earned my Bachelor of Arts in History at the University of North Texas here in Denton in 2012. It was at UNT that I met my beautiful wife Cristin, whom I married in 2013. My wife currently teaches kindergarten in Northwest I.S.D. In May 2017 we welcomed our first child, Lyla, into the world!
Other interests I have besides teaching include traveling, following sports, and watching movies. I've been fortunate to have travelled to places such as Boston, New York, Chicago, Portland, Seattle, Mexico, and Haiti. I am a die-hard Texas Rangers and Dallas Mavericks fan. (The 2011 NBA Finals still live fondly in my memory.) I am also very passionate about spending time with my family and friends and am very involved in my church as well. It is a privilege to be a member of the Denton High family and I am looking forward to a great year here at DHS. Go Broncos!
